Subject: Agitation against Central Government’s anti employees polices;Delhi March on 29 Aug 2016.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
All of you know that Government approved the recommendations of 7th CPC without any change in Cabinet Meeting on 29.06.2016. But Government did not pay heed to resolve the objections raised by the federations affiliated to BMS.
On the call of GENC we extended our moral support to indefinite strike proposed by NJCA which was scheduled to commence on 11 July 2016. But NJCA deceived the employees and called off the strike without any genuine settlement. NJCA proved itself incapable to get the problems of employees redressed and bowed before pressure exerted by Government.

Since neither any anomaly of earlier pay commissions has been resolved nor any demand related to 7th CPC has been accepted so far. In such situation GENC has decided to lead and conduct a humongous rally at Parliament in Delhi on 29 Aug 2016 to get resolved issues related to 7th CPC. Being a constituent of GENC this federation has also decided to be part of it to exert pressure on Government to redress the anomalies and settle the genuine demands made by us.
Therefore, you are requested to take part in the rally with massive number of supporters. The venue of Rally is Jantar Mantar and the programme is scheduled from 10 am to 3 pm. All the arrangements related to accommodation and lodging should be made by union itself.
